Oh in my opinion the Carls Junior ones are the worst! :x

I haven't seen either of those. We don't have a Carl Jr.'s here and I don't recall seeing that one for McDonald's. The ones that get me are those stupid Burger King ones for their new tendercrisp chicken sandwich. It's the Big Buckin' Chicken commercial. It's so annoying!

I don't know about the Carl's one either.
I'm in Canada so our McDonalds commercials could be a bit different.
The theme seems to be the same though.....disgusting :wink:

seems pretty hard to avoid them

Yeah, it is. It seems like every time a show breaks for commercials ther eis some sort of fast food in there. I am getting tired of the McGriddles commercials showing all that sausage, egg, and cheese. ICK! The bacon, egg, and cheese one is no better.

I saw one last night for the first time - it was Ruby Tuesdays.

Alright, it's this chef all decked out in white tending a grill. It shows the burger up close - burning hot death, nice - and the narator starts to talk about all the attention to detail that goes into each "mini burger."

Hold up, MINI burger? In a world where Arby's is offering a burger that is not only topped with bacon and cheese, but also steak, and weighs a pound, someone is trying to sell America a MINI burger! For a split second, I felt the pendulum swinging in our direction a tiny bit, a commercial for a chain restaurant encouraging American's to eat less meat. Not perfect, but a nice thought.

Yeah, nice thought...until they end the commercial showing what the actual entree looks like when someone orders this mini burger. They serve you FOUR little burgers on a big plate!

How could someone order a plate of 4 burgers and not feel like a complete lard ass? Nasty.

Maybe they think that since they are mini burgers that their calories and fat are also mini. Yeah right. :roll: Still nasty!

I like em, they help me stay vegan because they're so gross. Unfortunately it's the opposite for non vegans. I used to hate Mike's HArd Lemonade commercial where they go to a group of hick cowboys and say "I'm here for the vegan convention". If I was lame enough to drink that isht anyway, I would've stopped then.

I never really thought about it that way.
There certainly is truth to it though!

Meetyourmeat.com helps me stay vegan. As does the image of poor lil calves running around frenzed and scared with their umbelical cords still attached to them at a veal auction.

Even if that shit was good for you, I still wouldnt go anywhere near animal products for compassionate reasons. :)

i saw a commercial the other day for burger king. it wasn't disgusting, just annoying. just a bunch of guys singing something like "i'm a man!" and eating double whoppers. the message of course is that real men eat meat. :roll: i am so sick of that type of thinking and the whole concept of what a guy has to do to be a "real man".

Real men are kind to animals, and not afraid to show it either. That about covers all the men here on vb&f. 8)

I think real men are nothing like our culture portrays. I get sick of these commercials it's always some meat on the gril, lots of visuals you know they try to get people thinking about meat like they might forget to eat or something. I have seen one recently that is two guys talking and they are eating some burger type item and they are speaking in a foreign language, I guess italian. Why they show it in Texas is beyond me. It is captioned so you get the message that this guy really likes his food, but it's still really stupid.

There's a new Canadian beer commercial out now which advertises their new promotion .... 2 free steaks when you buy a case of beer.
not hard to imagine the images they portray :roll:

Yet another example of the "meathead culture"

I was actually going to comment on thats same commercial. That commercial irratates me cause they pretty much go on to say that anybody that doesnt eat meat are sissys. That you arent a man unless you eat a big fat artery clogging cheeseburger. Which seams to be the thinking of alot of people. :x so annoying!
